The pandemic we are experiencing is a reminder that our state of health is important. Fortunately, significant improvements in health are possible through a combination of traditional medical care and lifestyle change. While this may sound like common sense, it’s advice that few deeply appreciate.
To learn why most health issues have lifestyle as their root cause, I invite you to read the information that follows, view the videos, and read articles from my weekly advice blog. The good news is that the strategies that help protect people from COVID-19 are quite similar to the strategies that can help you lose excess weight, recover from over 100 common diseases, and look forward to an extended lifespan.
Are you ready for the best health possible?
- Are you tired of being ill, taking too many pills, unable to do all that you want to do?
- Have you tried fad diets, weight loss programs, health foods, and supplements without success?
- Do you want to be healthy for your children and grandchildren?
- Are you ready for a change?
- Are you willing to put in the effort?
- Then, it’s time for an evidence-based approach that uses the best from traditional and lifestyle medicine.
In America today, only about 1% of the population succeeds in achieving a lifestyle that provides an opportunity to enjoy a long healthy life. With 70% of 12-year-olds showing signs of heart disease, it’s not surprising that many experience a reduced quality of life by their 40’s. Then, most progress to a decreased quality of life when they could be enjoying excellent health.
To appreciate why my blend of traditional and lifestyle medicine offers new possibilities, take a moment to view the short video below which highlights one of the most common lifestyle problems today.
If making positive change has been challenging, don’t blame yourself. For most, it takes an acceptance that you may not be able to do it alone. Achieving the best health is a journey, not a destination. On that journey, I would like to be your mentor and physician.
If still unsure how lifestyle medicine enhances the value of traditional modern medicine, the following video by Dr. Greger provides an explanation. You will learn why lifestyle is the best defense against the 15 most common causes of disability and death in American.
My mission is to be your mentor and advocate in the changing health care system with comprehensive, coordinated, and continuing care.
